  • Conflicts between land use and transportation
    • Possible conflicts between location and magnitude of land uses and existing or proposed transportation lines should be ironed out.
    • Proposed land uses should be located as much as possible in areas which are served or to be served by transportation lines or in areas where transportation lines can be feasibly extended.
    • Where locating uses in certain areas becomes the greater imperative, the transportation plan should be adjusted or revised accordingly.
    • Areas with heavy densities (in some cases, heavy daytime densities such as CBDs, industrial areas, and school zones) should be served by adequate transportation routes and facilities such as parking areas, service centers, etc.
  • Delineate transportation network and proposed circulation pattern considering the achievement of the following:
    • Efficient internal and external linkages
    • Improved community access to basic social services and facilities/infrastructures
